    D60LF (6351-6403) Refurbishment

    Wiki updated.

    D60LF (6351-6403) Refurbishment

    Would I be right in assuming 6368 will not be going through refurbishment after all? I still have it marked as going under refurbishment on the wiki.

    4511 and 4516 both have vinyl ads now. These seem to be becoming more common on Inveroes. 4516 was on 101 St. Laurent at Carling/Royal at 08:13, while 4511 was on a 45 Hurdman going past CHEO at 13:24.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    I don't know what it is with my school and daily random groups. I get that they want to use that method but they may want to use it less, quite frankly. I love sitting where I want. I mostly pick the same seat because that's what I'm confortable with. I love working on my own as that's where I excel. As for groups, we do actually contribute equal amounts of work into our project, however, when it comes to presenting it to the class, I'll usually not present because I am too anxious (I have an IEP outlining this accommodation). In that case, I'll get one of my groupmates to take over my part and answer any questions that come out of it.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Does anybody else's teachers do random groups for seating every day? I don't like it. The math classes in my school have a method where they use random groups every day and make those groups work on problems on whiteboards for the whole period. I hate that because I end up being too self-concious and shy to attempt the problem in front of my group (I'm bad at math). And to make it worse, my group ditches me sometimes which means I'm alone to solve problems. So math class usually ends up being 75 minutes of dreading having a teacher unexpectedly come and help you in front of your groupmates. I also don't like when random groups are done just for the sake of being with different people every day. I find that it really doesn't do much for me. Some of my classes are like this. The only saving grace is that if I'm absent one day, I'm gauranteed to find my seat quickly in case the teacher randomly decides to change a normal monthly seating plan the day I'm absent. Also, am I the only person who prefers sitting alone or in self-chosen groups and working on booklets instead of doing these "activities" in random groups that are basically designed to make you collaberate?

    You know you're a transitfan when...

    When you realize that your fan sounds kind of like a 6V92TA/HTB-748.

    4521 on 88 Hurdman at 17:13 and had a vinyl ad on the passenger's side. So far, 4478, 4518, and 4521 have this kind of ads.

    March Break for us in Ontario is coming to an end already. I wish we had two weeks off like some other provinces. It went way too fast, maybe due to that time change?

    Some more spottings: 6413 was out of service traveling on Raven/Cavan at 15:20. There was also an unknown Invero with what looked to be a vinyl ad with a car on it on the passenger side passing by Pinecrest station. Edit: Added location for second sighting.

    I think that's the first time an Invero received a wrap of some kind since 2013, excluding the banner type ones above the windows. The last Invero to get a full wrap was in November 2013 if I recall correctly. Nowadays, it seems like only the hybrids and some double deckers and artics get partial or full wraps.
